GNOME 0.99.3 ready for easy installation

Michael Fulbright
announced:

“Its in ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/redhat/0.99.3

Should be an easy upgrade for a RH 5.2 system, includes gtk+10
and glib10, compatibility libs so current gtk+ 1.0 apps on your box
(gimp, etc) should still work.”

To help users out, Daniel
M. German
has written up some essential tips for users
interested in installing these RPMS:

Hi everybody,

I downloaded and updated my copy of gnome. I use RPMs for RedHat
(I have 5.1 with working 99.2).

I already had 99.2 and I installed 99.3. This might be part of a
read me file for the RPMS.

In my last two installations I have kept records. I like to
install and uninstall one by one (call me anal retentive when it
comes to installing packages).

Here is a valid order of installation (or desinstallation)
without without having to force any replacements:

This is a correct order in which GNOME installs (or uninstalls
in reverse order).

  • glib
  • glib-devel
  • gtk+
  • gtk+-devel
  • ORBit
  • ORBit-devel
  • libghttp
  • libghttp-devel
  • libxml
  • libxml-devel
  • freetype
  • freetype-devel
  • imlib
  • imlib-devel
  • fnlib
  • fnlib-devel
  • audiofile
  • audiofile-devel
  • esound
  • esound-devel
  • enlightenment
  • gnome-libs
  • gnome-libs-devel
  • gnome-objc
  • gnome-objc-devel
  • libgtop
  • libgtop-devel
  • libgtop-examples
  • glib10
  • gtk+10
  • ee
  • gnome-core
  • gnome-core-devel
  • mc
  • mcserv
  • gmc
  • gnome-games
  • gnome-games-devel
  • gnome-media
  • gnome-utils
  • gnome-pim
  • gtop
  • gtk-engines
  • xchat
  • imlib-cfgeditor
  • gnumeric
  • control-center
  • control-center-devel
  • gnotepad+

I needed to remove the following packages to be able to install
gtk, you might need to do so. They install in this order,
desinstall in the reverse one.

  • control-panel
  • printtool
  • timetool
  • usermode
  • replay
  • gimp
  • usernet
